If they decide to make Daddy Day Spa with Martin Lawrence and Jim Belushi, I don't want to hear about it.

Even the film stock's colour tint looks cheap and nasty. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Daddy Day Camp truly is a horrific mess. It's not really a movie for kids; it's a movie for kids by adults who don't have the slightest idea what makes a quality film for any audience ... puerile doesn't even begin to do it justice.

It all comes down to the "Olympiad," a battle of idiotic proportions between the two camps, and if you can't guess what happens next, this just may be the movie for you.

While the actors in Daddy Day Camp may be different, the tired and predictable storyline full of jokes involving urinating, flatulence, burping, vomiting and crotch shots remains the same.

I can't think of a single kind word to say about this unfortunate family comedy which is unoriginal, predictable, schmaltzy and bland.

Forgettable camp comedy is fine for kiddie laughs.

Parents! Hire a bouncy castle. Put on clown paint and make balloon animals. You need not see this.

An unnecessary and unlovable sequel to the Eddie Murphy vehicle Daddy Day Care, though this time the producers have traded down to Cuba Gooding Jr. Not recommended.

Criminally lazy follow-up to the syrupy family comedy Daddy Day Care.

Never work with children or animals. Unless you're a child or an animal, in which case, never work with Cuba Gooding Jnr.

Desperately unfunny, badly written sequel that's essentially a mish-mash of tired cliches, fart gags and genuinely terrible performances. One to avoid.

Whatever happened to Cuba Gooding Jr.'s career?

Watching children act, when it's bad, is on par with having a tooth pulled; and suffice it to say, the adult acting is not much better.

If your idea of fun is an hour and a half surrounded by screaming, whining, vomiting children, then this may be your movie.

While Danica McKellar is busy extolling the virtues of mathematics to young females of America, her erstwhile leading man Fred Savage can be found toiling for a far less noble cause.

If you like your outhouse humor explosive then this "'Camp"'s for you!
